Reviewed 6 February 2016

We stayed here for six nights in January and cannot find fault with our stay. The hotel was spotless, comfortable room and very friendly staff. Breakfast buffet had a wide choice on offer and the chef even put together evening meals to order that were not on the menu......... Will be going back again for sure!

The location is amazing, the hotel is right at the ocean beach, only 20 meters from it. This is a huge feature, not common. We had a room with a balcony on the 1st floor. The room was nice, but the bathroom had a vent window to the corridor, which you couldn't close, couldn't shut the noise out, and from...

Ahangama, Manager at Insight Resort, responded to this review

Thanks a lot for your recommendation of the location as well as the rooms. We agree there is a non openable vent in the bathroom but the light comes in through the frosted glass and the vent provides for letting out the odour. The vent has a louvre type of timber panel so when you stand by that from inside...

Thank you very much for recommending the location. We are not very sure what your disappointment with the room was, as if you look at the comment received 1 days before (29th January) and the one received one day after (31st January) both are highly recommending the rooms as well as the service. This is rather disappointing feedback we do...

Sandwiched between the beach and a busy and noisy main road. Small pool and a few loungers but not enough imho. Cricket strip if you fancy a game is a bit weird. No tv in room is a bit of a negative when your travelling alone and WiFi is only in lobby and bar area. My hot water was only...

Hello Mr/Mrs Kuepper It appears to be that the product Insight Resort is not to your expectation. Regret Sir/Madam, the product we offer is a 3*.

I stayed here for 3 nights one week and 1 night the following week. The location by the beach is beautiful. The rooms were basic and adequate, with no TVs, but as there is no lift so traipsing up to the third floor would not suit less able guests. The food was ok the first week, but appalling for our...

Further, the entire hotel is going to be differently able friendly with the completion of the new development. Regret to note about the appalling breakfast on the last day. We shall...

A small but very friendly hotel which is very easily accessible form Galle by local bus. It isn't 4* luxury but you're not paying 4* prices. Bedrooms clean with good air conditioning. As the bar and restaurant area are open at the sides air conditioning in there would be ineffectual. The staff are excellent. I had sustained an injury earlier...

Biryani was very ordinary. The chicken was revolting and not fit for a dog. We sent it back and never got a replacement or an apology. The rooms were clean albeit basic. They are misleading on their website about food and need to address inadequacies in this area.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
It is a place to relax, rejuvenate, and experience heritage, culture, nature and the way of life in the remote south of Sri Lanka. A resort located in an area where you can also surf and dive. From the lush green garden walk on to the golden sandy beach where you can see the natural reef breaking the blue water to a gentle wave which transforms to a tiny bubbly ripple. Swaying and whispering palms blended with the sound of waves on the quiet beach takes you through a journey of serenity. The long lonely stretch of beach offers you peace in abundance and a dip in the warm Indian Ocean is rejuvenating. Lie under a palm tree and relax on this unpolluted stretch of beach. Learn the art of stilt fishing – a mastery passed down from generation to generation and enjoy the only village of stilt fishing in the world. ... more   less
